Performance Venues

Performance Venues

When the center first opened it was announced as one of the region’s cultural capitals, offering artists and audiences five world-class performing arts venues. It still holds that distinction and has become so much more. Now, it is a vibrant destination contributing to Notre Dame’s excellence in the performing and cinematic arts. As the University’s home for the arts, our venues are a means to touch as many lives as possible.
